Mission Statement

Remineralize the Earth promotes the regeneration of soils and forests worldwide with finely ground rock dust as a sustainable alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides, creating fertile soils much as the Earth does. Not only do we need to recycle and return the organic matter to the soil, it is equally vital to return all of the mineral nutrients which create fertile soils and healthy crops and forests.

Description

An international NGO that networks information and research on soil remineralization to gardeners, farmers, ecological activists, scientists, policy makers and the aggregate and stone producers whose by-product is a source of remineralization; to promote further research and projects, from small to large, cooperative to businesses that would benefit and create a healthier environment. We have a website with an online magazine, forum, research, and many other resources.
